Halifax is set to celebrate the first anniversary of the donair being declared the city’s official food. An event will be held Dec. 8 to raise money for charitable organizations. Last year Halifax became the first city in Canada to have an official food. Local shop King of Donair is encouraging vendors of the food to pay tribute and support a cause of their choice. On Dec. 8, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., the shop on Quinpool Road will sell donairs by donation, giving the money to Hope Blooms.
